Introducing Aurory Project’s play-to-earn gaming ecosystem – Cointelegraph

Blockchain games are revolutionizing traditional gaming. From the humble days of Super Mario on a 16-bit console to today’s super-charged virtual reality games, much has evolved in the industry. Aurory Project finds itself right at the center of this exciting trend. This AAA blockchain gaming studio aims to speed up the global adoption of cryptocurrencies via incentive-based gaming. Aurory Project is creating a nonfungible token (NFT)-powered ecosystem with low-cost entry barriers, enabling and encouraging players from all over the world to participate.

The company has announced that its first next-generation game, Aurory, will have two main modes: a lore-rich player-versus-environment (PvE) adventure and a competitive multiplayer player-versus-player (PvP) mode. The game will utilize similar play-to-earn (P2E) mechanics that have made games like Axie Infinity wildly successful. Aurory is set in a retro-futuristic universe where the player is invited to explore the fantastical world of Antik, complete quests, discover lost relics, defeat creatures and compete with other players using their “Nefties.” These magical creatures are designed as NFTs that can be caught, evolved, traded and used in battle. Each Neftie species has a unique combination of strengths and abilities that offers an array of strategic combat roles. 

In the solo adventure mode, players follow the journey of Helios, a retro-futuristic cat-like protagonist, completing quests, interacting with colorful non-playable characters and defeating opponents in an exciting storyline, all the while earning NFTs and AURY tokens. In PvP mode, players can use their trained Nefties to compete against each other in the “Arena.” Neftie trainers from around the world will take part in friendly duels, ranked tournaments and other game modes that will be unveiled over time. All NFT assets and AURY earned from both PvE and PvP game modes can be traded on the marketplace.

AURY is the platform’s multi-utility token. It is a Solana Program Library (SPL) token and forms a core part of the gaming ecosystem. It is currently listed on FTX, Huobi, KuCoin, Raydium and Orca. In the future, the token will also act as the governance token of Aurory, allowing its holders to vote on important game-development decisions.

With a team of at least 35 people, many of whom come from other AAA game-development studios, it’s no surprise just how much this gaming platform has achieved in such a short time. As an example, Jonathan Campeau recently joined as executive producer. His credentials include more than 18 years in the gaming industry, working for Ubisoft, EA, Gameloft and Minority, and he was the head of production for several Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry editions. In addition to this strong development unit, Aurory Project has an experienced group of advisors. One of its leading advisers is Tristan Yver, head of strategy at FTX US. He brings his industry-leading expertise, taking the company to the next level.

Russian-Made Elbrus CPU’s Gaming Benchmarks Posted – Tom’s Hardware

Russia doesn’t have many homegrown processors — the Elbrus and Baikal are probably the two most popular chips in the country. While they may not be among the best CPUs, their importance has grown now that major chipmakers AMD and Intel halted processor sales to the country. They’re also apparently capable of gaming, as we can see from a series of gaming benchmarks from a Russian YouTuber. They even used Russia’s own domestic operating system for the tests.  

The Elbrus-8SV, a product of TSMC’s 28nm process node, comes with eight cores at 1.5 GHz. Moscow Center of SPARC Technologies (MCST) developed the Elbrus-8SV to be the successor to the original Elbrus-8S, which had eight cor…….


Phil Spencer says ‘2022 was too light on games’ – PC Gamer

In 2021, Microsoft’s gaming division published games like Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite, Age of Empires 4, and Psychonauts 2. It was declared Metacritic’s publisher of the year (opens in new tab) thanks to its games receiving an average metascore of 87.4, helped also to the Xbox Series X port of Microsoft Flight Simulator releasing that year. While in 2022 Microsoft backed some well-received smaller games—Grounded, Pentiment, and As Dusk Falls—its biggest releases, Starfield and Redfall, were delayed into this year.

Xbox stans weren’t happy about this, though I think maybe we could do with less rushed videogame releases and maybe less videogames overall. During a recent inter…….
